Nutrition

Nutrition is a significant part of my practice.  The “Gut” is core in our immune health.   In order to maintain health and wellness a major portion of the office visit is focusing on healing the gut. Guidance is given on nutrition and the importance of whole foods in the diet. I do not prescribe specific diets but teach a whole foods system approach and incorporate personal food preferences, culture, religous and spiritual beliefs to help the individual and family heal and maintain wellness.

I utilize numerous types of testing to help to assist in the best possible healing methods of the immune system “our gut”.  These can include traditional blood tests, food sensitivity analysis, and stool analysis.  Testing is based on the indiivduals personal and environmental history. During a home visit a nutritional assessment is done in the kitchen to furthur assist in optimal food preparation and buying.
